Stupa of Wat Phra Mahathat surrounded by the year and value.

Wat Phra Mahathat Woramahawihan is the main Buddhist temple (wat) of the Nakhon Si Thammarat Province in Southern Thailand. The main stupa of the temple called Phra Borommathat Chedi (Great Noble Relics Stupa) was built by King Sri Dhammasokaraja in early 13th century CE to establish a symbol for the Theravada Buddhism sect in the province. The temple is believed to house a tooth relic of Gautama Buddha.

A stupa (Sanskrit: m.,स्तूप "heap") is a mound-like or hemispherical structure containing relics (śarīra - typically the remains of Buddhist monks or nuns) that is used as a place of meditation.
